The Determinedly Old-School MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE: REVELATIONS trailer.

Come, I will conceal nothing from you: I watched a good bit of SHE-RA AND THE PRINCESSES OF POWER, because my wife loves that show. I liked it well enough. It wasn’t particularly aimed at my sub-demographic, but not everything needs to be and it wasn’t badly written. I got no beef with that series, in other words.

I note this mostly because, after watching this trailer, I can see no path forward for crossing over that particular IP with MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE: REVELATIONS.

Interesting cast, too. Some names there…

Kevin Smith created the sequel series and serves as showrunner. The all-star voice cast includes Chris Wood as He-Man, Mark Hamill as Skeletor, Sarah Michelle Gellar as Teela, Liam Cunningham as Man-At-Arms, Lena Headey as Evil-Lyn, Diedrich Bader as King Randor and Trap Jaw, Alicia Silverstone as Queen Marlena, Stephen Root as Cringer, Kevin Conroy as Mer-Man, Henry Rollins as Tri-Klops, Jason Mewes as Stinkor, Justin Long as Roboto, Tony Todd as Scare Glow, Cree Summer as Priestess, and Harley Quinn Smith[*] as Illena.

  1. I will be there, assuming my buddy’s Netflix password continues to function on my TV. I think I was nine or ten when I purchased my first MOTU figures. That was before the cartoon series. What I saw on that day in the Toys R Us were characters without a story, and it was love at first sight. Now, whenever I see He-Man cartoons, it just brings me back to that time before the cartoons, when Eternia was a blank canvas and He-Man and Skeletor were instruments that allowed me to tell a thousand stories of my own.

  2. You weren’t kidding about the old school part of that, from music choice to animation style. But with Kevin Smith involved, I am actually expecting more from the plots.

    I watched some when they first came out but it missed me by a few years. I was already interested in more complex stories and plots, and expected a little more from my shows. Robotech drew my attention. I had no idea that they made 130 episodes of this.

  3. So I guess this means that He-Man and Skeletor didn’t both get pulled to another world, where they fought alongside a new cast of heroes and villains?


    On a more serious note, the trailer looks busy. Very busy. Perhaps a bit too busy. But if that’s pulled in from a dozen or so episodes, that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

  4. An ‘all star’ cast should not include two people who only get work when Kevin Smith is involved and another person who I have never heard of, not once.

  5. DB was great on the Drew Carey Show. And Who’s Line. Cree Summer can only be the ‘secret identity’ of one of Marvel’s failed in 6 issues and never seen again mentally ill ‘heroes’.

    1. Cree… KREE! Marvel connection confirmed! You might be onto something!

      On a more serious note, while I hadn’t heard of her either, she’s apparently not a nobody. She’s had a long career as a voice actress, providing the voices for numerous characters over the decades, including a character who most here would recognize – Elmyra.

  6. There might be an IMDB page set up for cover, but no one has ever seen this ‘Cree’.
    It’s much more likely that – in the long tradition of ‘union representative’, ‘ driver’s assistant’, and ‘ executive producer’ – ‘voice actress’ is code for ‘slush fund to pay for cocaine and hookers’. ​

    Or mob payoffs.
    Don’t discount the chance of it being mob payoffs.

    1. Hookers?

      I don’t think anyone would actually pay real money to spend time with Elmyra, *particularly* if it got “intimate”. Instead, you could *charge* people money to keep Elmyra away from them.
